William Wallace, leading the Scottish army, thwacked the English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. Robert the Bruce, not only fought the English and won at the Battle of Bannockburn, but in 1306 became King of Scots. Bonnie Prince Charlie, trying to regain the Scottish throne in 1745, did occupy Edinburgh (but never conquered Edinburgh Castle). He stayed in style in the Palace of Holyrood House, sleeping in a comfy bed, and attending parties and balls. You’ll also see his portraits often showing him wearing a white curled wig. The Flag of Scotland is also known as St Andrew's Cross or the Saltire. According to legend, the Christian apostle and martyr Saint Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, was crucified on an X-shaped cross at Patras, (Patrae), in Achaea.
